Advice on a new Atmos receiver.
Hey all I've been trying to decide on an Atmos receiver but not sure if i'll be missing out on a lot by going with 5.1.2 instead of a 5.1.4/7.1.2 the price for a 9.2 CH Atmos Receiver really spikes in price I can't decide if the extra 2 Atmos speakers are worth double the money? My budget is $500.00 what are your thoughts on it?
for 7.2 CH I was able to find a slightly used Denon X3300H for $250 this was my first choice because I wanted audyssey multeq xt32/sub eq, the other two are the Pioneer VSX-LX303(379.99) and the Onkyo TX-RZ830(499.99) The Pioneer was the cheapest Atmos 9.2 receiver I could find. My room is 20x20x10 non vaulted ceiling with no option for side surround speakers unless they are ceiling mounted.
